Flint police say a woman was beaten after returning a stolen bag of marijuana to a drug dealer on Christmas Day.
The Flint Journal says the unidentified victim and a friend bought the illegal drugs at a home in the city about 50 miles northwest of Detroit about 10 p.m. Saturday.
Police say when the woman tried to return the stolen bag to the dealer about 20 minutes later, several men and women punched, kicked and beat her with belts.
The dealer drove the woman and her friend to the victim's home, where the victim's two dogs bit the suspect when he tried to enter the house.
The suspect fled and the woman was transported by her son to a hospital.
No further details were released.
